New Gear: Legacy Aeris Speaker

At this coming weekend's Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, Legacy Audio will be rolling out their latest tower, the Aeris, an all-new four-way configuration. Prices start at $15,900, in your choice of Legacy finshes.

The real news is a brand-new driver configuration, the all-new dual Air Motion tweeter, which should increase both efficiency and power handling, and afford better integration with the 8-inch midrange driver. Complementing those drivers are a 10-inch mid-bass and dual 12-inch woofers, that driven by an onboard 750-watt ICEpower module (extending bass response on down to a claimed 16 Hz). An onboard 24-bit DSP manages the whole affair, while the sub section includes balanced, unbalanced, and S/PDIF and USB digital inputs are provided, along with a level control.

A 21/4-inch thick baffle (laminated in leather) and 2-inch cabinet walls keeps everything nice and stiff, while the cabinet itself sits on a carbon-fiber laminated base for maximum rigidity.

So if you're curious to hear Legacy's new approach, get over to the Denver Marriott Tech Center this weekend.
